I recently had a bout with the "spy sheriff". After following the instructions on the forum everything seems to be removed from my machine. However I am still unable to change the wallpaper/theme on my desk top. Any ideas?? I am also getting the following errors upon start-up. "Run DLL error loading 0ce80unc.dll and VCCLIENT.exe error application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Any ideas??

A couple of questions. Are you running service pack 2? Have you tried running (start->run) msconfig and removed VCCLIENT.EXE from your Startup list? That, at least, will be a temporary fix for the error message. Unfortanley, returning 0xc0000135 means that a registry hive has been damaged. Did you have a backup copy?

About the wallpaper.. Are any other accounts on the machine about the change the wallpaper? Adding and removing wallpaper changing ability lies in one of two places -

If only your account is effected, check
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop for the branch entry named NoChangingWallpaper with a DWord value of either 1 or 0 (disallow or allow -- if this is set to 1, change the value to 0)

If all the accounts are experiencing the same inability to change desktop wallpapers, check
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop for the same entry branch as stated above.

Much luck,

From http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.htm :

Windows attempted to load a DLL file and encountered some error condition. Among the many possible causes are that the file is missing or damaged, or that there is Registry corruption.

* Blue Screen STOP Message C0000135 Appears at Startup {KB 173309} Win NT 3.51, 4.0
* Damaged Registry Repair & Recovery in Windows XP {KB 318159} Win XP
